Despite its high frequency, Ehlers-Danlos disease remains practically unknown to doctors who evoke many other diagnoses with dangerous therapeutic and social consequences. These diagnoses primarily include mental disorders that sometimes lead to hospitalizations in psychiatry. Progression of the disease’s clinical knowledge allows for a diagnosis of certainty, based solely on clinical examination, in the absence of biological marker in the hypermobile form, which is by far the most often encountered.
